David Crosby: “Don’t Bet Against an Englishman”

Hawk Honey Rachael

“The lesson today, children, is don’t bet against an Englishman. I know this from personal experience,” David Crosby coolly enlightened the chuckling audience during the Crosby, Stills and Nash concert this past Saturday night at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City.

“We used to have…ways of pretzel-izing our lyrics. We’d sing, ‘Little blips on the radar, very free [instead of 'wooden ships on the water'].’”

“Our mouse is a very, very, very fine mouse,” his voice boomed.

“We have a song called ‘Find the Cost of Freedom.’ We were playing a show one night, and I had supposedly sung, ‘Find the coast of Sweden.’”

Turns out, Englishman Graham Nash had called him out on the matter. He still has the $1,000 check Crosby wrote him for losing the bet; it’s framed on his wall.
